Pet dogs have to meet certain conditions to be allowed to enter into Sweden. What the conditions are depend on what country they are imported from.
From January 2012 a new set of rules, all set by the European Union, apply for bringing dogs into Sweden. You will find useful and up-to-date information on bringing dogs do Sweden at Jordbruksverket's website (The Swedish Board of Agriculture). Click on the link below.
Please note that:
- it is prohibited to keep or own wolf hybrids in Sweden
- it is prohibited to keep or breed dogs particularly prone to aggression (Swedish Ordinance - SFS 1988:539, amended by SFS 1997:49 - on animal welfare).
